If you’re a naturalist or a nature lover on social media chances are you have come across Bird & Moon, an exceptionally fun series of webcomics filled with colorful and endearing and accurate nature themes. Bird & Moon is the creation of New England-based artist and writer Rosemary Mosco. Her new book, Birding is my Favorite Video Game, is a collection of many of her most viral creations and a lot more. Rosemary joins me to talk birds, video games, science communication, and the fun of gross-out science.

Also, a watershed moment in the history of birds in media, and the yanny-laurel theory of bird mnemonics.
